Summary of "Brief report: Clinical experiences after emergency use of daratumumab monotherapy for relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma in real practice."

Despite the recently reported efficacy of daratumumab monotherapy for patients with relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma, outcomes in real practice following daratumumab monotherapy have yet to be investigated. A multi-center retrospective study of 16 Korean patients receiving daratumumab monotherapy for relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma was conducted. The overall response rate was 56.3%. Three patients with creatinine clearance <30 ml/min even achieved an overall response. The median progression-free survival was 2.7 months with 28.9% (95% CI, 9.0-52.8) of 6-month progression-free survival. All infusion-related reactions, including ≥Grade 3 back pain (6.3%) and dyspnea (6.3%), were manageable. The most common hematologic and non-hematological adverse events were anemia (62.5%) and upper respiratory infection (43.8%). ≥Grade 3 bacterial infectious adverse events were identified, including upper and lower respiratory infection (12.5% and 18.8%) and death following sepsis (6.3%). We observed acceptable outcomes of daratumumab monotherapy on relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma patients including even a few subjects with high comorbidity, despite relatively frequent infectious adverse events.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A way of providing emergency medical care that is guided by a thoughtful integration of the best available scientific knowledge with clinical expertise in EMERGENCY MEDICINE. This approach allows the practitioner to critically assess research data, clinical guidelines, and other information resources in order to correctly identify the clinical problem, apply the most high-quality intervention, and re-evaluate the outcome for future improvement.

Branch of EMERGENCY MEDICINE dealing with the emergency care of children.

Paramedical personnel trained to provide basic emergency care and life support under the supervision of physicians and/or nurses. These services may be carried out at the site of the emergency, in the ambulance, or in a health care institution.

Work that is the report of a pre-planned clinical study of the safety, efficacy, or optimum dosage schedule of one or more diagnostic, therapeutic, or prophylactic drugs, devices, or techniques in humans selected according to predetermined criteria of eligibility and observed for predefined evidence of favorable and unfavorable effects. While most clinical trials concern humans, this publication type may be used for clinical veterinary articles meeting the requisites for humans. Specific headings for specific types and phases of clinical trials are also available.
